Bulldogs to Compete at Farnsworth Invitational

Yale to Open Season with Annual Fall Tournament

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Bulldogs will open their fall season this weekend at the Farnsworth Invitational in Princeton, N.J. 

Divided into five singles draws, the tournament will be Yale’s first of five tournaments in the fall season.  Yale’s three freshmen, who make up the No. 4 recruiting class in the nation, will make their debut this weekend.  

Alex Dorato, the Cary Leeds Head Coach of Men’s Tennis, said the first tournament will be exciting. 

"The first tournament of the year is always particularly exciting, especially for the freshmen who will be playing for Yale for the first time,” Dorato said.  “I am very optimistic about this year's team; we have a strong core of returning starters, and three very talented freshmen.  I look forward to seeing how we stack up against some of the other Ivy's who will also be at the Farnsworth Invitational."
